Popular music artists crossing over into the film composing world isn’t something entirely new, but within the past few years we’ve seen a couple of fascinating artists forge partnerships with brilliantly talented filmmakers.  Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails have collaborated with David Fincher on his past two films and will score his upcoming pic Gone Girl, and now Film Music Reporter confirms that Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood will work with director Paul Thomas Anderson for a third time on the filmmaker’s Thomas Pynchon adaptation Inherent Vice.

Greenwood, of course, penned the score for PTA’s last two films There Will Be Blood and The Master, so his involvement with Inherent Vice isn’t a massive shock.  Hit the jump for more on Anderson’s next film.

We’re still waiting for a firm release date for Inherent Vice, but the period film is expected to hit theaters sometime this year—likely later this fall in the midst of awards season as a Toronto International Film Festival debut seems very possible.  The story takes place in 1969 Los Angeles and centers on pothead/private detective Larry “Doc” Sportello, who is helping a former lover with an intriguing case that involves infidelity, mental institutions, and policemen called “Bigfoot.”  Joaquin Phoenix tackles the lead role in a reunion with his The Master director, and the incredible ensemble cast is filled out by the likes of Josh Brolin, Katherine Waterston, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Kevin J. O’Connor, and Maya Rudolph.

There’s no telling what we can expect by way of tone, but sample some of Greenwood’s excellent scores for There Will Be Blood and The Master below.
